Knowing God’s Plan for Marriage
Unto You, O Lord, do I bring my life. O my God, I trust in, lean on, rely on, and am confident in You. Let me not be put to shame or [my hope in You] be disappointed; let not my enemies (rejection, hurt, inferiority, unworthiness) triumph over me.
Father, it is written, “For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord” (Jer. 29:11-14 amp).
In the name of Jesus, I always pray and do not turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up).
Father, I am looking for Your plan, Your answer for my life. It is my desire to be married. But I must be sure in my decision that I am living as You intend and accepting whatever situation You have put me into. According to Your Word, marriage will bring extra problems that I may not need to face at this time in my life.
All the ways of a man or woman are pure in his or her own eyes, but You, Lord, weigh the spirits (the thoughts and intents of the heart). Therefore, I roll my works upon You [commit and trust them wholly to You; You will cause my thoughts to become agreeable to Your will, and] so shall my plans be established and succeed.
Because You, Lord, are my Shepherd, I have everything I need!
You let me rest in the meadow grass and lead me beside the quiet streams. You restore my health and give me new strength. You help me do what honors You the most.
Even when walking through the dark valley of death, I will not be afraid, for You are close beside me, guarding and guiding me all the way.
You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as Your guest; my blessings overflow!
Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterward I will live with You forever in Your home.
In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
